Boomkat Product Review:
One to watch, Gaunt gets off on some noisy, bass-heavy madness for London’s Them label in the Don’t Trip EP.
Landing with a wobbly bump some three years since his debut on Beneath’s Mistry label, Gaunt’s 2nd EP follows similar coordinates into the outer limits of UK bass, techno and psyched electronics.
The sludgy recoil of Say What establishes a rudely sloshing meter that carries thru the EP, with its brownian murk gathering a noisy momentum into the off-centre teeter and fizzy flux of Weeboo - think Batu heading into a K-Hole - before Don’t Trip pulls back from the brink of said abyss with zumby-puppeteering melody and buoyant subs holding dancers in suspensful animation, before he evacuates the body in a plasmic, jellyfish-like structure called Sod Times For Sod.
Definitely one of the weirdest UK bass records you’ll hear this year!
